    I think that you can find plenty of examples of folks who fared well in the FSL and failed in the big leagues. You can find plenty for those who didn't fare well in the FSL and succeeded in the big...

    It was that Cabrera guy that drove the market... Interesting. Also interesting that he was heavily recruited by the Twins before the Marlins came in and got him.

    And the moral of the story......

    Yeah, the Duensing for Dylan Bundy trade might go down as one of the best of all time.

    Not really. Players peak on a pretty typical scale. 27-32 is considered the peak range when their production on average tops out. When a guy is getting the job done at age 24, that bodes very well...

    Overrated in what sense? I doubt he'd be considered a top 10 pospect right now. In most systems, he is one.

    As of this morning he has a respectable .281 average. I'll take it. We know he's got some power. I'd just prefer he improved that contact for the time being.

    Just a point of caution, but teams making more than 2 or 3 trades at the deadline is pretty rare. I'd imagine that a lot goes into this. I would expect some trades, and I think there are a number...

    I'll be honest in that I'm not sure Meyer will be up at all this year except in a September callup situation. He's on an innings limit, and has been somewhat underwhelming of late in AAA (last start...

    Other thah Correia, who I think can be replaced by something better, I'm not sure why they'd do a partial sell. I'd sell anyone who isn't in next year's plans.

    Yes to the first 3. No to Buxton. I'd guess Tonkin and Darnell may come up as well.

    I'd be curious what his splits are from when he was below the mendozaa line till now. His overall stats don't say much, but he got off to a terrible start and now has respectable numbers... in a...

    Another question Jack, have you ever read through our game threads here? Lots of good entertainment.

    You know... there's screen capturing software that you can run which will essentially run non stop from a computer. If you have a spare, download it, run it, vote for Morneau, and then replay.

    Hey Jack,

    Any chance you could make a cameo appearance at the park August 23rd? Most of us mods are planning on being there... Ash will be there too, so you can pay him back for banning you.
  15. yep

    yep

    I was about to say the same thing. I'm more of a back end systems guy, but you'd be a great fit... Wonder if the Twins could beat out your place.
  17. I didn't have a problem giving Pino the starts...

    I didn't have a problem giving Pino the starts when the call came. May had just pitched that long game and wasn't available, and Meyer wasn't pitching well in AAA. That said, I suspect May is the...

    I'll try to address this a bit. We've had some of our own discussions on some of this, as we recognize that a moderator warning can kill a thread pretty easily. As such, we've been kicking around...

    I agree that this can be difficult to moderate, though we have had to take action on it from time to time. It can be a form of trolling. It's somewhat difficult to capture from a policy standpoint,...

    You are right, should have been worded differently (4.8 years below average age).

    I asked that question once, though I don't remember to who, and was basically told that it's built in so to speak. They already know that the pitcher is going to the X number of pitches.

    I...

    So by my count, we have the two youngest pitchers in the MWL in Thorpe and Stewart and the youngest pitcher in AA by about 4.8 years... That bodes well for the future rotation I'd think.

    Cannot blame Gardy if Nolasco says nothing. I do think management can be blamed if they've built a culture that discourages injury reporting. Don't know if that's what going on here or not, but...

    Ah, more sense. I can get behind that. I'd assume they'd do that with a lot of talent.
